The History Of That Gorgeous Little Black Dress
December 1, 2017
The little black dress has been one of the staples of women's wardrobes for many decades. Most public figures from different countries of the world give preference to this gorgeous clothing item. Despite its popularity worldwide, few people know that this luxurious wardrobe item had to go through a serious competition and fight for its position.
In 1926, Vogue published a photo of the first "Little Black Dress" that became the prototype for many luxurious outfits in various collections of fashion designers. The model whose photo helped popularize the little black dress wore a black dress designed by the legendary style icon and trendsetter Coco Chanel. The garment was actually a simple gown with crocheted fabric and long narrow sleeves complemented by a laconic and noble accessory, a string of white pearls. Fashion geniuses of the time claimed that this style would soon become a kind of "uniform" for any woman with style who strived to look formal and elegant at the same time. However, this opinion was not uniformly accepted by the public.
